The 2013 Christmas TAG

I love the run up to Christmas and love getting into the spirit of things....So when I saw this over on Make-upPixi3 I knew I had to join in so here are my answers!!

1.  Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic?
I would love a real tree but I don't want the mess....So a fake one for us....At least with a synthetic one we can pack it away for next year!!

2.  You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick?
A hot chocolate with marshmallows!! Yum!!

3.  Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
I love reds and golds....So Christmassy and warming!! By the time the kids have finished though it's usually a mish mash of all colours....

4.  Giving or receiving?
I love giving presents...Yes it's nice to receive them too but seeing someones face when they get something you have picked out for them is so special....

5.  To mince pie or not to?
Yes!! Mince pies are one of my favorite part of Christmas!!

6.  What's your traditional Christmas lunch?
Turkey,  Roast and Mashed potatoes, Diced swede, Roast Parsnips, Peas, Carrots, Pigs in blankets, Brussel sprouts, Sage & onion stuffing & Cranberry sauce!! YUM!!

7.  Christmas day fashion
We dress up smartly....We all get a new outfit and the girls have a new dress each....  

8.  What's your favourite Christmas song?
Hard choice....Either Fairytale Of New York or Do They Know It's Christmas?

9.  What's your favourite Christmas film?
This is a toughie....Elf, Love Actually or The Snowman....

10.  Open presents before or after lunch?
hahaha....Imagine trying to make the kids wait until after lunch....I think they would explode with excitement.....lol We open ours as soon as we get up....Usually about 6.30am....lol

Psst, if you're reading this, you're tagged too!!!


  1. I am totally with you on the Christmas tree issue. I love the spell of a real one, but don't want to be finding needles in the carpet till July. Hot choc watching Love Actually in a sparkly dress is my idea of heaven - I think I have found a kindred spirit ;-)
